Main Stream Media Attacked For Being Unfair? DP Ruto And Raila 'Two-Horse' Race Blasted (Video)

A section of presidential hopefuls have joined the debate to call for a fair airing of events from the media side, asserting that the media has a great impact on the Kenyan political politics, slamming the idea of the Royal media services of only airing the campaigns of one individual, the Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga.

The likes of Jeff Kaluyu, a Presidential aspirant while speaking to TV 47 Kenya, said that the media should not join the bandwagon of a two-horse race, which closely tagged along with Deputy President William Ruto and Raila amid the highly anticipated 2022 general elections.

“Media has a great role in a country achieving democracy. The media should not join the bandwagon of a ‘two-horse race. Be partial and fair to all presidential candidates,” said Mr. Kaluyu.

On his end, Kenya`s gospel minister, Mr. Reuben Kigame said that the fact that the second in command made a decision to distance himself from the ruling Jubilee party and started early campaigns did not mean that the campaigns had started.

He later slammed the idea of a two-horse presidential race, adding that other aspirants should equally be given the audience they so deserve on fair merits, hinting out that, he has maintained his social media accounts from which he shares with his supports and Kenyans naming but not least, YouTube channel.

“The fact that you don’t see us in mainstream media, maybe their plans to cut us out, we have mastered our new campaign model so that we don’t do what other people do,”

“The fact that William Ruto stopped being DP a long time ago and started campaigning does not mean that campaign periods have started. It is not a two-horse race, we are more than 6 actually, he Kigame said.
